Parasound Zcd CD + MP3 Player Preview


The Parasound Zcd is a very targeted CD player and, frankly, it probably isn't targeted at you. The entire Z line is built around the idea that you'll be building a large rack of gear and need to get the best performance in the least amount of space....

A CD player with a 3.5mm input and USB port with MP3 playback? For home theater it doesn't really make sense. But with 24-bit, 192kHz-capable DACs, integrated preamp, and a $400 price tag, the Parasound Zcd is an intriguing solution for industry...

Pontus Pac-7002 CD/MP3 CD Player


The speakers in your car stereo don?t always give an account of what good sound needs to be. The subwoofers and tweeters play an important role that define

The Pontus car stereo MP3 player comes off from the source unit and can also be used as your personal player. All the accessories that go into the installation and the functioning of the MP3 player come along with the source unit. There is also a USB...

No A/V Input!


I'll keep it because the DVD player and TV modes do work and it's portable but I'll have to look elsewhere for a monitor.

Nice portable TV and DVD player. Local (So Cal) 1 day delivery

Only one egg because this unit was bought primarily as a portable video monitor. The listed specs here state A/V in/out and the product picture shows a switch on the right side, in front of the antenna which, I assumed, is the A/V in/out select but the...

CD Doesn't Feed.


I do like the deck, but the cruddy CD problem and the dirt poor customer service ruined it for me.

Red = no night glare ; Has lots of connection options

Almost right away I began having problems with the CD reader. Something is failing to instruct it to feed in the CD's when I go to put a new one in ; Boss support was miserable at best, it took over a week for them to get back to me, matter of fact it...

Coby Portable DVD Player / DTV


If you're looking for a truly versatile portable DVD player / DTV this unit will fit the bill.

I am extremely pleased with this unit to date. It's everything I needed and more. I'm getting 3 hrs and 20 min out of full charge which is more than I expected. The resolution is actually 640 X 234 and makes a sharp picture for it's 9"size. I purchased...

Vintage player with a great sound!


Let me put it to you this way, I research any product I am about to buy over $100. After viewing countless turntables/record players on Amazon and music stores and other websites, I was almost sick and tired of it and just ready to give in and buy a...

nice vintage look and beautiful wood design

no outputs for additional speakers and no cassette

No issues

Good for vinyl records lovers.


This stereo system is great for new generation music buffs who would like to experience the sound of a vinyl record. Music lovers from previous generations will definitely be able to quell their nostalgia for "old" technology, classic design and...

Really quells that nostalgic craving for old technology

Good for capturing LP sound to MP3 files.


This is a fun item to hear all of the LPs that have been laying around unplayed for years. The conversion to MP3 allows me to play them in the car which has a USB input.

Ease of use

sounds quality not great, recording does not always start right away and some material is lost at the beginning
